August 3, 2017 (San Diego's East County) -- East County Magazine proudly announces launch of our East County Dining Club! 

We've pulled out all the stops for our launch party at the fabulous Fabrison's Country French Restaurant on August 25 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. We have thousands of dollars in prizes, a delicious all you can eat gourmet French feast, winetasting from the Toast of the Coast winning Deerhorn Valley Winery, music by "Diva" star Lenelle Wylie and more!

Try fabulous foods, win amazing prizes, bring your friends and meet new ones, plus help sustain nonprofit news in the public interest and wildfire/emergency alerts for East County.

Sign up for invitations to future East County Dining Club adventures to savor cuisines from around the world (and the best American foods, too!)-- all in East County.  Email editor@eastcountymagazine.org with "Dining Club" in the subject line.

Reservations and payment are required by Aug. 20 for this very special dining club launch party. See the delicious details below!

How it works:  Each restaurant donates 15% or more of proceeds to benefit East County Magazine and our East County Wildfire & Emergency Alerts.

Dining club members enjoy a variety of feasts at all different price ranges, with invitations to at least one event monthly.  You can also win thousands of dollars in prizes through drawings and silent auctions, meet the media, and at some events enjoy music, meet winemakers, chefs or special guests. 

Cost:  Each event is priced separatedly based on the restaurant. Some events will be open menu/pay at event, others a prix-fixe menu which diners prepay. 

Launch Party Cost: Our launch party ($45 including all-you-can eat gourmet dinner, tax, tip and winetasting) requires prepayment by August 20, as we have to prepay the restaurant for this extra-special feast which requires advance preparations by Fabrison's..

There is also an annual $10 fee to cover our overhead, to be paid no later than the third event you attend. Members will receive a cookbook with recipes from participating restaurants, all pre-chosen by our restaurant reviewers, plus more special recipes from wineries, farms, and our reviewers, and 2 free  prize drawing tickets as thanks. When you renew each year, you will receive additional recipes and tickets.


WHEN:  FRIDAY, AUGUST 25,  6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

GOURMET FEAST!  Crepes  (all you can eat! Crepe Bourgignon [beef & wine], Poulet Cordon Bleu [chicken], La Mer [smoked salmon], & Le Vegetarianne), Plateau d’ Fromages (French cheeses & fruits), French onion soup, Salad Nicoise, fabulous French desserts, & wine tasting with Toast of the Coast winner Deerhorn Valley Vineyards.
